Goregous Paintings of Spirit Animals Wandering Through Colorful Landscapes

Artist Gill Bustamante who is based in Sussex, England, is the creator of large-scale, ethereal landscape oil paintings. Working with a vibrant color palette, she described her style as "a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I'm in that day." Sounds like a true artist. 

So, what inspires her? "...the patterns of nature and the energy, colors, and spaces of the landscapes and animals" that are around her. And wow, are we glad that is what gives her the inspiration for such gorgeous paintings! 

If you're amazed by Bustamante's paintings, then make sure to check her out on Etsy and Saatchi Art.

Artist Paints Amazing and Detailed Animals on Smooth Stones

Art comes in all different forms. Just like "stone artist" Akie Nakata (from Japan) whose rocks are more than meets the eye. She decided to take something so simple as a rock and transform them into very adorable and a bit realistic animals. She has left the canvases at home and had decided that smooth rocks will be her platform. Drawing very detailed animal depictions on the surfaces. 

Nakata create varies animals, and although they seem random, each holds a deep meaning. The talented artist describes it as seemingly serendipitous encounters... Nakata personally goes to collect the stones that she decorates. As she keeps her eyes pealed for potential finds, she does not have specific subject matter in mind. Instead, she finds that inspiration in each rock. To Nakata, the shape of every stone, defines a animal its own way.

"The art of flying" is a short film about "murmurations": the mysterious flights of the Common Starling. It is still unknown how the thousands of birds are able to fly in such dense swarms without colliding. Every night the starlings gather at dusk to perform their stunning air show. Because of the relatively warm winter of 2014/2015, the starlings stayed in the Netherlands instead of migrating southwards. This gave filmmaker Jan van IJken the opportunity to film one of the most spectacular and amazing natural phenomena on earth.
